Care & Support
Care & Support
Life often confronts you with changing events that are often out of your control. This is especially true for people who may need care and support from one day to the next. No one is immune to the need for care that can arise unexpectedly - be it due to an illness, a very old age or an accident.
In the Waldeck-Frankenberg district, there are a variety of assistance options that offer help and support in such a case. From advice to the mediation of concrete offers to legal care options, the Waldeck-Frankenberg district offers appropriate advice and assistance so that those affected and their relatives can be supported in the best possible way in this situation, which is often stressful.
Care support point
A need for care can be a great challenge for those affected and their relatives - and raise many questions. The care support point of the Waldeck-Frankenberg district offers support, orientation and help.
When caring for relatives or loved ones, legal guardianship may play a role under certain circumstances. The district informs and supports affected persons in this procedure.
Dementia family group
The district offers family members information and exchange on dealing with a dementia illness within the dementia relatives group. This also includes information about outpatient or inpatient treatment options.
Support community caregivers
With support from the state of Hesse, the district will soon employ five community caregivers. They are to provide support in everyday problem situations in the run-up to serious or chronic illnesses or the need for care.
